Mike Osborne's (M.F.A. Studio Art, 2006) book, Floating Island, has been published through Daylight Books. The tome chronicles his documentation of a phenomenon at the Bonneville Salt Flats which causes a small mountain to appear as if it were floating above the horizon. Osborne presented the book, project, and an exhibition at the completion of his 2012 residency at Artpace.
